After the successful start-up of TUM Asia’s Master of Science programmes, TUM Asia was invited to partner with Singapore Institute of Technology (SIT), to offer Technical University of Munich’s (TUM) Bachelor degree courses in Singapore. This opportunity saw us join Singapore Institute of Technology (SIT) as one of her first Overseas University (OU) partners in 2009, offering our first TUM Bachelor degree in 2010. Since then, we have been running our TUM Bachelor degrees in partnership with the Singapore Institute of Technology (SIT), and have been seeing TUM graduates enter the workforce since 2013.

In 2020, the partnership with SIT was further strengthened when the existing Bachelor degrees were evolved into joint SIT-TUM programmes:


TUM Asia offered the first TUM bachelor’s programme in 2010 in collaboration with Singapore Institute of Technology (SIT), Singapore’s fifth university. In 2020, TUM and SIT further established their partnership by launching 2 joint Bachelor degree programmes, the Bachelor of Engineering in Chemical Engineering and the Bachelor of Engineering in Electronics and Data Engineering. The joint degree programmes are conferred by both Technische Universität München (Technical University of Munich, TUM) and SIT.

The joint degrees have been tailored to provide the student with the foundation of German expertise knowledge, with the relevance of the Asian industry outlook.

  • TUM is #1 University in Germany (QS World Ranking 2023), #7 in Europe and #30 in the world (Times Higher Education (THE) World University Rankings 2023) 
  • TUM professors are flown to Singapore to conduct classes on an exclusive teaching basis
  • The curriculum are well tailored to impart knowledge in German Engineering with an Asian relevance

Note: The bachelor’s degree will be jointly managed by both SIT and TUM Asia, the Singapore campus of TUM. 

  • Unique SIT – TUM Partnership
  • 12-month Integrated Work Study Programme (IWSP) allows students to work full-time in a host company for twelve months, blending theory and practice to obtain valuable industrial know-how.
  • For the TUM portion, students will be taught by TUM professors, all of whom are flying from TUM to TUM Asia to conduct classes exclusively.
  • Students will have the opportunity to go to Germany for a 3-week Introduction to German Chemical Industry (Chemical Engineering) / German Engineering (Electronics and Data Engineering) to widen students’ global outlook as they undertake projects to develop their interpersonal and technical skills, while exposing them to current industry challenges. 
  • Professional Degree to be accredited by EAB Singapore
